hi so I've always had issues with my body and eating but these past few months I've been religiously counting calories, fasting, restricting calories to 300-800 a day, and then completely bingeing and fasting. Im now looking to stop these behaviours as its exhausting mentally and thankfully I have an amazing mum who's helping me. Is it okay to say I had an eating disorder? She says admitting I had one is the first step but I feel like it's not valid as it was only about 5 months? Please help!
